Want to LOSE WEIGHT and GET IN SHAPE??!!!
The APPLE-A-DAY+ WEIGHT LOSS SYSTEM!!
If you’re ready to get back into your skinny jeans and hit da clubs…then do what we say!!!
Here’s what you need-
500 apples (organic if your budget allows)
The ability to eat 500 apples in a week.
That’s it!! That’s all we got. Just eat some dang apples. You’ll be skinny in no time.
Disclaimer- The author of this post does not believe you should eat 500 apples in a week. As a juice or whole. What you really need is a sensible diet in which you eat protein at every meal along with colorful fruits and veggies, lots of leafy greens and good fats- avocado, coconut, and olive oil.
If you’re wanting to lose weight, stick with the veggies and limit your fruit intake. Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Eat slowly and chew your food thoroughly. Don’t watch tv/ play on your phone/ sit at the computer while you eat. Add in a smart work out plan and get adequate rest.
Obviously the above apple post is nonsense. Who would do that? Well…there are lots of people trying to lose weight and using unsafe measures like eating only one food for days to weeks at a time, taking pills, starving themselves, and using supplements with less than safe ingredients. Much of the time, this is unnecessary and results in quickly losing weight only to gain it back. Since the weight didn’t get put on overnight, it’s not going to be gone in a week. And if it does, I’m going to guess that whatever you did wasn’t the healthiest choice.
Moral? There’s a BIG difference in being HEALTHY and being SKINNY. We know the difference when we see it. Do super skinny models generally look healthy? No. In my opinion (hey it’s my blog) CrossFit women look fit, healthy and capable of hard work. Big arms, you say? Not every woman bulks up doing CF. Have you seen Kara? How many guys can she beat at pull ups, muscle ups and handstand push ups (but it’s not a competition). A healthy body is one that is strong and fueled well. It can do daily tasks demanded of it with relative ease. Do you have that kind of body?
The Next Big Thing?
Eat Good Food
Work Out With Purpose
Do It Again
Those are the steps to reach your goal. Go get it, my friends!
Maybe eat 1 apple a day 🙂
